If I correctly understand what you're asking, no, it is not possible.

It would be best at this point if you described what you're trying to
accomplish and allow us to give recommendations.  There are many types
of load balancing, from layer 2 through 7.  To properly answer your
question we need to know exactly what you are trying to load balance,
and to what end.

For example, the most common types of load balancing are for SMTP, HTTP,
POP, and IMAP.  Load balancing SMTP simply requires multiple equal
priority MX records.  Load balancing HTTP and POP usually only requires
round robin DNS.  Load balancing IMAP may require a specialized director
server or proxy, especially in the case where the IMAP clients are
webmail servers.
